Najam Sethi wants to make PSL a separate entity

Najam Sethi wants to make PSL a separate entity, ) Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee Chairman Najam Sethi has revealed his plan to make the Pakistan Super League (PSL) a separate entity.

In an exclusive interview with ‘Cricket Pakistan’, Najam Sethi stressed the importance of establishing a separate entity for the PSL, as it has now become a major brand with wider responsibilities in global cricket.

He said that the ‘Pakistan Super League (PSL) should be a separate company from PCB with a majority board but the private sector should also be involved to strengthen it.’

Najam Sethi, 74, also admitted that the proposal had met with skepticism in the past, with people suggesting he wanted to create a separate company to protect his interests.

He said that when I proposed this in the past, people said that since I am the chairman of PSL, I want to create a separate company to ensure my interests, although this was not true.

He said that now that I am the head of the PCB management committee, I am of the opinion that PSL should be a separate company with its own secretariat, chairman, and board of governors.

In November 2016, the PCB approved the revival of the PSL, including a proposal by then PSL chairman Najam Sethi to set up the league as a separate entity with its own governing board included.

The plan involved registering PSL as a private limited company completely independent of the PCB.

Despite the apprehensions of the then Chairman PCB Shehryar Khan regarding PSL’s separation from PCB, the Governing Board unanimously approved the proposal.

However, the implementation of the idea faced several delays and did not go as planned.
